Gluten-Free Stone Fruit Cake

Making the most of the summer seasons stone fruits, I usually make several trays of this cake to eat on the spot or freeze for those dull winter days when I miss eating these fruits. In fact, I brought a couple of slices along for my recent train trip from Vienna to...

Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones

Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones

Lucky for me, it’s the middle of summer in Europe! The ideal weather to perfect these gluten-free ice cream cones. A lot of ice cream has been eaten over the last two weeks, plus plenty of mess from all the testing, decorating etc. The batter is a classic sugar cone...

Gluten-Free Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Gluten-Free Cookie Dough Ice Cream

It’s hard to believe that we need to be gluten-free savvy about what goes in store-bought ice cream, even though the main ingredients are dairy and usually gluten-free. The gluten culprit is usually the flavour additions like cookie dough, Oreos, brownies, etc. If you...

Gluten-Free Beef & Ale Pies

Gluten-Free Beef & Ale Pies

I was very tempted to call this dish “Beef and Guinness Pie” to honour St. Patrick’s Day on 17th March, but as Guinness doesn’t have a gluten-free range (yet!), I am quite happy using one of the many gluten-free beers available. Although the Guinness is missing, the...

Gluten-Free Pizza

Gluten-Free Pizza

Pizza night occurs every fortnight in our home. Typically, I roll out four large homemade gluten pizzas for the family. As for me, I usually resort to a tiny frozen store-bought frisbee pizza that tastes like cardboard, although I do jazz it up with my favourite...

Gluten-Free Apple & Blueberry Crumble

Gluten-Free Apple & Blueberry Crumble

I love to make this easy, wholesome, wintery fruit compote topped with a crunchy and buttery biscuit crumb when I make a light dinner. Today, while I was making this crumble, it snowed in Vienna. While flakes were falling gently past my kitchen window, I enjoyed the...

Gluten-Free Gingerbread Christmas Cookies

Gluten-Free Gingerbread Christmas Cookies

Gluten-Free Fudge Brownies

Brownies are very forgiving in the gluten-free kitchen. They don’t need to rise, stick together to form a shape nor require that much flour. If you are new to baking, this recipe is a good start. I believe there are two important things about making a successful...

Gluten-Free Waffles

Gluten-Free Waffles

If there is one hypnotising smell at a food market, hands down it has to be the smell of waffles cooking – especially during the winter season. Most advent Christmas markets in Europe have a waffle stand and I am convinced it acts as a marketing tool to send the...
